The space
Our home comes with warmth, a calming way and a story. From our life overseas, across continents, we bring you our vision: affordable, sustainable, simple living in a bespoke, hand crafted tiny house built with love by us for us as professional tiny house builders. This home, and its deliberately wild surroundings, were more than a dream of creating a rustic, four season refuge; it was art and gentle way of being in the natural world. Our wood rich hideaway, with its one of a kind windows and hand-made furniture, beckons the wild world around it inward and your senses outward to the profound stillness and movement of forest life. An early morning sunrise on our garden wrapped wood deck or an evening of stars against a jet-black sky make this natural cathedral a very special place to be.

Where you’ll be

Millbrook, Ontario, Canada

Our property borders the Millbrook Valley Trail system. The Millbrook Valley Trail has five routes, ranging from 0.6 km-3.0 km. some flat, some rolling hills, nothing too challenging. There are multiple entrances with short drives from the tiny house, or you can access the one trail directly from the property with one time guidance.

We are not on the water. But we are in the heart of an outdoor adventure paradise. You can access beaches in about 20-30 minutes depending on the beach. We're 30 minutes from the Trent Severn Water Way, and 20-40 minutes to many lakes including Rice Lake, Clear Lake, Stoney Lake, and Scoogog. Ming and I love Clear Lake and there are some beautiful parks and swimming near Lock 27 in Young's Point. There are several beaches ranging from 20-40 minutes from our property. They include Coburg Beach, West Beach, Omemee Municipal Park, and, of course, Lakefield Beach - our favourite.

Simple. Tranquil. Kind. Minimal. This is how Ming and I choose to live. The four corners of the earth have been our classroom, and from the privilege of many mentors and many countries, we have learned these values. Either collectively or individually, we have lived, worked, studied or owned businesses in Canada, Latin America, Asia, Australia, and Africa. We have found friendships in unexpected ways and wish to carry forward the kindnesses shown to us with you as hosts and guests.

During your stay

As hosts, it is very important to us that guests feel comfortable on arrival and throughout their stay. For some, the perfect holiday is enhanced by meeting new people from around the world. For others, part of the joy of AirBnB is discovering new place for themselves. We are generally happy to accommodate either preference, with one exception: Off-Grid, or cross grid, homes have unique features not found in traditional homes that require a little instruction to use safely, effectively, and comfortably. We would appreciate about ten minutes of time at the beginning of your stay to ensure your stay is a pleasant one. Thank-you.
